Hi all,
	The Promega Luciferase assay kit that we purchased is running
out of  luciferase substrate (luciferin, CoA and a mysterious
competitive inhibitor of luciferase), and we don't want to splash out
big bucks for another. Would someone be so kind as to tell me (and the
newsgroup !!) how to make my own luciferase assay substrate ? Any
information will be much appreciated. If possible, send a copy of your
followup post to me via email at dvoon at

Many thanks in advance :-)
